A December 2008 report released by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life listed this startling finding: Fifty-two percent of Christians in the US who attend churches that believe Jesus is the only way of salvation accept this idea: "Some non-Christian faiths can lead to eternal life." In an earlier 2008 survey, only 39 percent of the Christian respondents said they believed that the Bible is the literal Word of God.
Living in a pluralistic and increasingly religion- intolerant world, we feel the pressure to become socially and politically correct, to not be exclusive in our faith views. At the same time, those who view the Bible as just a book written by men, not God's Word, see no reason to believe what it teaches.
The apostle Paul warned of a time when "people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching" and "will reject the truth" (2 Timothy 4:3-4). To counter and correct this kind of biblical compromise and rejection, we are to "carefully guard the precious truth that has been entrusted to you" (2 Timothy 1:14; 1 Timothy 6:20). To guard the truth, these things are necessary: â€¢ Obey the truth (Deuteronomy 4:6). â€¢ Teach the truth to our children (Deuteronomy 6:7-9). â€¢ Study the Scriptures (Acts 17:11). â€¢ Test the truth (1 Thessalonians 5:21). â€¢ Hold on to the truth (2 Timothy 1:13). â€¢ Teach the truth to others (2 Timothy 2:2). We have the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, to help us (1:14), and to guide us into all truth (John 16:13). The Spirit will "carefully guard the precious truth that has been entrusted to you" (2 Timothy 1:14). , K.T. Sim, OurDailyJourney
